What order should the yakuza games be played?

Numerical, probably. Y0 will probably be better for most than the Kiwamis that follow it, but it shouldn't be too bad.

 

That said, you can play Yakuza: Like a Dragon whenever since it's a separate game with a new protagonist and story, so it's newbie friendly.

What order should the yakuza games be played?

Chronological: 0, Kiwami, Kiwami 2, 3 - 6, Like A Dragon
or
Release: 1 or Kiwami, 2 or Kiwami 2, 3, 4, 5, 0, 6, Like A Dragon.
If you go in release order, you can either play the original 1&2 or the Kiwami remakes. 0 and the Kiwami remakes flow together better due to changes made to the original games in the remakes, but some purists prefer the original entries so if you're playing in release order, it doesn't make much difference.

The DioField Chronicle has a demo that's out now:

 

PS5: https://store.playst...FCDEMO00000005N

PS4: https://store.playst...FCDEMO00000004N

 

I believe that it's the first chapter and progress carries over to the full game.

I grabbed a year of ps+ essential for $39.99 and since I never had a ps4 it looks like I’m set for a while. I claimed the 3 games for the month and the 19 games for having a ps5. I shouldn’t need to buy anything else for a bit.

I read that publishers are moving their big releases around because of Ragnarok.

Maybe, but they don't really appeal to the same people.

I pre-ordered UNDERNAUTS for PS5 when Amazon had it for $30 as a price error, and then forgot about it. It's on its way now, but I'm not sure I want it. Does anyone have any sense of whether this is the kind of game that will get cheap in a hurry, or if it's niche enough that it will hold its value?

Evil West looked like it could be fun. A delay is fine by me and I may pick it up after I finish GOW Ragnarok.

Has anyone ever claimed an "Included with Plus" game after having already claimed that game's free physical PS5 upgrade?  I'm wondering if both versions stay on your account or if your disc upgrade version is canceled out by the Plus version.

 

I shall elaborate. I own a physical PS4 disc of Dead by Daylight. I claimed, and have been playing, the free PS5 upgrade version. However, because I play the game sooo much, I think I would prefer to grab the Plus version now just so I don't have to constantly pop the disc in all the time. But I don't want claiming the Plus version to overwrite my disc upgrade version in my account/library, just incase there comes a day in the far future when I no longer have that tier of Plus.

 

Normally, I shouldn't have to ask this, but I discovered back when the new tiers came out that you cannot claim the free PS5 upgrades to PS4 disc games if that game is included for free in Plus, as when I attempted to claim my Cris Tales upgrade and whenever I clicked on the disc upgrade icon, the claim button would be overwritten by a "Download free with Plus" button instead.

Fyi, I got a “only for new subscribers” when trying to stack the Target promo after redeeming the Apple Card promo. I was able to stack the Apple Card promo onto my other 1-month trial I got somewhere else.

Question: just recently got a PS5 and got a year of essential cheaper than it would be through psn store ..

If I want to upgrade to the next tier how much will that cost me and am I allowed to revert back after say a month or two without being charged more money since I already bought a year?

Price will be whatever it is minus the sub you already have.

 

And if you sign up for a year, which I think you have to, no you can't revert back until that sub is up.

Damn it evil west. I guess since I got it for 30% off I won’t be getting a bigger discount at target anytime soon anyway so it’s all good

Time will tell, I suppose. I only ever saw like 2 copies of the switch version on a shelf and it would seem there is no PS5 upgrade for this game. If it's a small printing (and its a game people want/like) one day, it may go up, esp if the digital version ever gets delisted. My estimation is if it goes up in value, it'll be more than a few years

weird 0 and kiwami are both showing up as downloadable. I'm pretty sure I never bought those. I don't have extra either.  kiwami 2 isn't showing up as downloadable and has the get ps+extra tag to get it under the add to library or whatever button.

If you have PS+ Extra, they’re both in that as of yesterday.

I don't have extra which  is why I don't understand why these are popping up but others are not. I probably should have mentioned I don't have extra in the previous comment so my bad. Fixed that.  Kiwami 2 doesn't show as downloadable so I dunno whats up.   The only yakuza title I have purchased on psn is 6 I believe.  It's funny since the games I should be able to download on ps4 because of the new system for titles you own on other platforms I can't for some of those titles (regardless of whether I bought them in a sale or got them through ps+ or anything else) but games I've never owned are showing up as free. 

 

I'll just chalk it up to getting stuff for free for no discernable reason like that batch of ps+ titles from a few years ago suddenly being playable on my account when I didn't have plus anymore.

Kiwami was a PS Plus title at one point.  I don't think Zero ever was though.  Very interesting.

I don't have your answer, but I'd like to learn as well. How terrible you can't 'buy' the free PS5 upgrade if it's in Plus. What if the PS5 upgrade stops being free before your PS membership lapses? Ugh, just like the PS3 wouldn't let you buy a game already activated from PS+.
